Top 6 Reasons Why You're Not Married

So author Tracy McMilian (not to be confused with "Waiting to Exhale" author Terry McMillian) published an interesting article about 2 weeks ago about why some women folk are still single and not married.  This article is assuming a couple of things, that you are a woman of a certain age,  you want to be married and all of your friends, cousins, sisters are getting hitched but somehow the ship keeps sailing past you. 

So here are Tracy's top 6 reasons why YOU are not married:

 1. You're a Bitch. - Here's what I mean by bitch. I mean you're angry. You probably don't think you're angry. You think you're super smart, or if you've been to a lot of therapy, that you're setting boundaries. But the truth is you're pissed. At your mom. At the military-industrial complex. At Sarah Palin. And it's scaring men off.

2. You're Shallow. - You are looking for someone tall. Or rich. Or someone who knows what an Eames chair is. Unfortunately, this is not the thinking of a wife. This is the thinking of a teenaged girl. And men of character do not want to marry teenaged girls. Because teenage girls are never happy. And they never feel like cooking, either. 

3. You're a Slut.- if you're having sex outside committed relationships, you will have to stop. Why? Because past a certain age, casual sex is like recreational heroin -- it doesn't stay recreational for long.

4. You're a Liar.- You lie to yourself about the state of your relationship.You hang around, having sex with a guy, waiting for him to figure out that he can't live without you. I have news: he will never "figure" this out. He already knows he can live without you just fine. And so do you so stop lying to yourself.

5. You're Selfish.- If you're not married, chances are you think a lot about you. You think about your thighs, your outfits, your good wife, even a halfway decent one, does not spend most of her day thinking about herself. She has too much s**t to do, especially after having kids

6. You're Not Good Enough. -Oh, I don't think that. You do. I can tell because you're not looking for a partner who is your equal. No, you want someone better than you are: better looking, better family, better job. Here is what you need to know: You are enough right this minute. Period.
